Gaddafi set to take Benghazi

world Updated: Mar 18, 2011 01:09 IST

Muammar Gaddafi's tanks were reported on Thursday to be on the outskirts of the last remaining rebel-stronghold of Benghazi in a race against time as the US mulled the possibility of air strikes to stop the advance of his forces.

Intense battle raged around the key town of Misurata and Ajdabiya, as rebel forces were making last ditch efforts to stop two tanks-led columns closing on the two port cities of Benghazi and Tobruk.
